PURPOSE Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and IL-8 participate in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps, and their levels are increased by prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in different cell types. The purposes of this study were to determine whether PGE2 has any effect on the increase in the levels of IL-6 and IL-8 in nasal polyp-derived fibroblasts(More)
Mesenchymal cells condensation is crucial in chondrogenic development. However current tissue-engineered scaffolds for chondrogenesis pay little attention to this phenomenon. In this study, we fabricate poly(l-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA)/poly(l-lactide) (PLLA) microfiber scaffolds and coat them with human fibroblast-derived matrix (hFDM) that is a(More)
The use of tissue engineering to repair large osteochondral defects has been impeded by the limited regenerative capacity of cartilage. Herein, we describe the local release of bone morphogenetic protein 7 (BMP-7) to stimulate the bone marrow-derived progenitors to repair osteochondral defects. BMP-7-releasing poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) matrix(More)
This study will examine how the therapeutic factors (therapeutic catharsis-seeking and game-efficacy of the game player) and self-construal factors (independent and interdependent self-construal of the game player) as well as social capital factors (bonding and bridging social capital of the game player) affect aggression in the game. Results show that both(More)
CONTEXT Since AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation in skeletal muscle of obese rodents stimulates fatty acid oxidation, it is reasonable to hypothesize that pharmacological activation of AMPK might be of therapeutic benefit in obesity. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of the traditional Korean anti-obesity drug GGEx18, a mixture of three(More)
[Purpose] This study was performed to investigate the changes in the body balance index when spiral taping is applied to the neck and ankle. The findings are expected to serve as evidence of the usefulness of taping the neck instead of the ankle when ankle taping is not feasible in clinical practice. [Subjects and Methods] Twenty healthy male students at A(More)
It is time to pursue a new perspective on players’ aggression studies. In this study, we examined whether and how players’ aggression is affected by game usage. In contrast to most existing studies, our study asks about crucial underlying factors among the general game population and thereby investigates therapeutic factors (internal health status belief,(More)
Violent games have increasingly gained their market share in recent video game markets. They have attracted much attention due to their potential effects on users in advertising and aggression. However, little research has investigated such effects considering both user aggression and persuasion mechanism in virtual space. Based on the general aggression(More)
